Isabel's friend, Edward's daughter, lives far away and has asked Isabel to check in on her dad in New York. At first Isabel is just doing her duty. But soon this charming, elegant, cultured man has become her dear friend. She gives him a reason to go on without his beloved wife of 72 years, and he gives her a renewed faith that happiness is possible.
Each chapter in this true-life tale takes place at dinner at Edward's apartment, and, like Edward's meals, the whole adds up to so much more than the ingredients.

Disappointing and uninspired
I love food and stories of unusual friendship, but this was painful to listen to
It was like listening to menus without much imagination with some tidbits of a weak and poorly edited story mixed in
The authorial voice and the narrators are both annoying. There is little reflection about the characters’ inner lives
The idea of a story unfolding over dinner is interesting but this book is not.

So lovely I think I'll buy a hardback!
What a charming, lovely and loving story with a background of food and recipes that keeps giving and giving. A very small criticism is the poor pronunciation of the French vocabulary. That certainly won't stop me from looking at this in print and spending the day cooking snd remembering cherished friends!
